Traveling to a new and exotic location can be fun and sometimes a little intimidating. There is so much to see and do, and people to meet, and food to eat, that we can get caught up in just making a quick snapshot of the interesting people that we meet. That’s great for the memories, but with a few guidelines in mind, your portraits can really evoke a sense of the people and places that will have more meaning for you over time.

Bobbi covers the simple steps to approaching strangers, communicating with them, and setting them up in appropriate light with backgrounds that help tell their story. This requires several things as a photographer: awareness of place, light, color and letting go of your fear. Remember that no matter where you are in the world, we have a shared humanity and a smile is universal.
